[REVIEW] 2019 NEW Missha Time Revolution Night Repair PROBIO Ampoule

Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule Review

Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Probio Ampoule was purchased by Cosmeperks.

This ampoule and I have a history! I was a part of the test group for those percentages you see on advertisements, but it was a blind testing and we didn’t even know the brand. As soon as I received it, just by smelling, I knew it was a Missha ampoule. Maybe I used a lot of them already?

They didn’t tell us it was a night ampoule, so I used it during the day too. Eventually the product was released, and they revealed the name of the blind product. Of course I was so excited to be a part of it, when Nigama asked me if I wanted to review it I didn’t hesitate (I didn’t even check the price) because I was already so in love with it.

[REVIEW] Innisfree Oat Mild Moisture Sun Cream SPF50+ PA+++

Innisfree Oat Mild Moisture Sun Cream SPF50+ PA+++ Review

Innisfree Oat Mild Moisture Sun Cream SPF50+ PA+++ Review:

I’m a total sunscreen junkie and always on the hunt for sunscreens that provide adequate coverage and don’t dry out my already dry skin. I’m trying to delay the aging process for as long as possible and sun is known to be the number one factor in premature aging so I take sun care very seriously!

Innisfree is one of my favorite Korean brands as a lot of their products use natural ingredients such as fruit and vegetables and many of the ingredients in their products come from Jeju Island. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Jeju Island, it’s known as the Hawaii of Korea.

[REVIEW] SECRET KEY Starting Treatment Eye Cream

SECRET KEY Starting Treatment Eye Cream Review

SECRET KEY Starting Treatment Eye Cream Review:

I’ve never thought that using an eye cream is crucial before. For me, it’s just a secondary, even tertiary needs. I personally thought that having enough sleep is the best cure for tired, puffy eyes with dark circles. It’s the same with eye wrinkles – no one could stop your aging skin, including the usage of eye creams. However, those ‘immature’ thoughts were when I still had no problems with my around-eyes skin. I’ve always had dark circles due to sleeping habits since high school era, so it didn’t bother me. But approximately earlier this year, I found some fine eye wrinkles and I panicked! I was only mid 20s and I’m having wrinkles? Uh, a big no!

I realized and decided that I should treat my around-eye skin better. Of course I should repair my sleeping habits, but I guess using outside treatment is gonna help too. Then, I decided to try SECRET KEY Starting Treatment Eye Cream.

Why SECRET KEY Starting Treatment Eye Cream out of many eye creams? First, I’ve tried the SECRET KEY Starting Treatment line before (Starting Treatment Essence and Starting Treatment Cream) and both of them worked very well on me. I believe their galactomyces content is somehow works compatible with my skin.

[REVIEW] NACIFIC Fresh Herb Origin Sunblock Calendula SPF50+ PA++++

NACIFIC Fresh Herb Origin Sunblock Calendula SPF50+ PA++++ Review

NACIFIC Fresh Herb Origin Sunblock Calendula SPF50+ PA++++ Review:

I was running out of my old Innisfree Daily UV Protection Cream No Sebum Sunblock when I ran into this NACIFIC Fresh Herb Origin Sun Block Calendula SPF50+ PA++++. The brand NACIFIC, previously known as Natural Pacific, is famous for its hyped Fresh Herb Origin Serum, and it also claims to use natural ingredients on all their products. Thus, I was intrigued to try this one; does this product do well just like its ‘cousin’ from the same brand?

[REVIEW] Innisfree Moist UV Protection Cream Winter Barrier SPF50+ PA++++

Innisfree Moist UV Protection Cream Winter Barrier SPF50+ PA++++ Review

Innisfree Moist UV Protection Cream Winter Barrier SPF50+ PA++++  was purchased by Cosmeperks.

I was very excited to first hear of a sun cream specific for winter, and even more so when I saw it had a super high SPF. Everyone, and that includes “skin care gods” like Koreans, thinks they are safe in the winter, that the sun will not get them. Here in Korea it’s especially difficult to recognize the difference between a cloudy day or a polluted day – unless you are sensitive, asthmatic, or have an app that gives you air notifications.

So whereas I accept that in cloudy days people may be deceived into thinking the sun “is okay”, here we have more polluted days than cloudy ones. And in the dry winter how can I use the anti-sebum sun creams I use in the summer?

So with a sun cream for this especially difficult season, of course it spiked my interest. Weirdly enough it isn’t as popular here as I thought it would be!

Naruko AMPM Total Brightening Renewal Treatment Mandelic Acid 5% Review

Naruko AMPM Total Brightening Renewal Treatment Mandelic Acid 5% Review:

Ah, I remember I was still a newbie in skincare when I first purchased this product. After ditching those pesky physical scrubs, strengthening my basic routine and used (and also got bored of) konjac sponge, I decided to jump into the world of chemical exfoliations.

Of course, before jumping in, I read a lot of stuff. I wanted to try AHA first to get rid of my acne scars and to brighten my complexion and all the other stuff AHA is supposed to do. After reading and researching a lot about AHA, I decided to try mandelic acid as it is considered suitable for a newbie like me. And after further research, I found this product, AMPM Total Brightening Renewal Treatment Mandelic Acid 5% and it is easy to get at the nearby drugstore in my area. I kinda don’t want to wait which is why I decided not to buy it online, haha.

[REVIEW] Etude House UV Double Cut Clear Sun Stick SPF 50+ PA++++

Etude House UV Double Cut Clear Sun Stick SPF 50+ PA++++ Review

Etude House UV Double Cut Clear Sun Stick SPF 50+ PA++++ Review:

I didn’t notice when Etude House posted their UV Double Cut series on their social media account until I watched Law Of The Jungle where Red Velvet’s Seulgi using this product and, yes, I wanted to try it out too. Perfect timing since I needed to buy a new sunscreen at the moment.

So, Etude House UV Double Cut line consists of 3 products which are Fresh Sun Gel SPF 50+ PA++++, Moisture Tone Up Sun Fluid SPF 48 PA+++ and Clear Sun Stick SPF 50+ PA++++. All of them are interesting, though. The Fresh Sun Gel is well marked as the best seller and winner of Marie Claire’s Smart Beauty Award. The Moisture Tone Up Sun Fluid has extra function to brighten up skin tone. And the Clear Sun Stick looks very easy and quick to use.

To be honest, I eliminated the Moisture Tone Up Sun Fluid once I read it highly contains Titanium Dioxide (it tends to, or absolutely will, leave whitecast and I want to avoid that). I did the same for Fresh Sun Gel since it has alcohol in its ingredients list. I know, I sound too picky but I really want a friendly product for my sensitive skin without any whitecast effect, so yeah, the Clear Sun Stick seemed to be the best choice.

[REVIEW] The Saem Eco Earth Power Green Sun Cream SPF50 PA++++

The Saem Eco Earth Power Green Sun Cream SPF50 PA++++ Review

The Saem Eco Earth Power Green Sun Cream SPF50 PA++++ Review:

I’ve been using The Saem’s Pink sun cream for almost a year now, and you can say that while I’ve grown bored of it, it’s still the one sunscreen that I always reach for. Earlier this year when I went to order it, I noticed that The Saem had a couple of different sunscreens, ones that I had never seen before, namely this green sun cream. Naturally, I looked it up and found that the ingredients looked very similar to the pink one.

Because I find the pink one a bit drying in winter, I wondered whether the green version would be more moisturizing and better for winter than the pink version. I decided to try the green version out after noticing that titanium dioxide was higher up in the ingredients list than in the pink version. Mostly I just decided to try it out because I was feeling bored with the pink version of the sunscreen.
